Life can be pretty stressful for us humans, unless of course you happen to be an American 5-year-old child raised by boring mildly successful white people. If that’s you, I’m really impressed that you’re reading at this age. Your parents should probably put you on a show hosted by Steve Harvey. Anyway, unlike you Miss or Mister 5-year-old the rest of us have bills, relationships, jobs and squad goals that can lead to anxiety and as such I decided to help.

Tips to Reduce Stress and Anxiety for Saiyans
I wanted to highlight stress and anxiety tips as they relate to not only humans but anime characters as well because I am a somewhat pathetic man-child. Just kidding, I’m not pathetic but rather I A creative master mind that you should donate money to. Plus, I thought it would be more fun to interweave narratives to something surrounding a nerdy niche vs just telling you how to live your life-like some unemployed life coach. The model in this motivational video is Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super. He’s a vertically challenged, envious, angry man obsessed with being the best and constantly falls short of that goal. The twist is he is also an alien and was born with a monkey tail. If you know Dragon Ball then you know that’s not the real twist but instead rather the twist is despite all of Vegeta’s short comings he actually has an extremely great life but is too busy being stressed out to take notice.
How Stress and Goku Defeated Happy Vegeta
Before I dig into what makes Vegeta’s life great let me explain who he was BEFORE he came to earth and before he met Goku, the hero of earth that is the source of most of Vegeta’s rage. If you dial back time, when Vegeta was first introduced he was an evil space villain that smirked all the time, laughed at his own jokes and had no qualms about destroying entire planets. He loved what he did for a living AND you could tell by the expression on his face. Needless to say aside from the forced slavery, he loved his life…AND THEN HE MET GOKU.
Shortly after meeting Goku, Vegeta all of a sudden became extremely petty and angry. He lost his smirk and rarely did anything that wasn’t yelling or proclaiming his distaste for anything that wasn’t blue spandex. You see, Goku despite not being an elite warrior was stronger than Vegeta and old Veg-Head couldn’t take playing second fiddle. He lost much of his original personality and enjoyment of life. He no longer laughed and is not characterized by his trademark scowl. He may no longer be evil, but it could be argued that he’s also no longer happy because of the way he has let the pressure, stress and anxiety affect his life.
This has happened to such a degree that even though Vegeta now currently has a healthy adoring child, a hot wife, a billion dollar corporation and unlimited financial resources, he’s still walking around with clenched butt cheeks because he can’t let go of the idea of being lesser than Goku. He never took any steps to de-stress or focus on the achievements he has made since landing on this planet. The guy has a cush life and probably doesn’t even realize it. The guy could be enjoying his life over 9,000 times more if he just stopped and smelled the roses.
Reduce Stress Now
I get it though. Not all stress is things we can just stop focusing on but I implore you to do any and everything you can gain control of your situation. If you can’t do that, try to focus on the other things in your life so the stress doesn’t overwhelm you.
The power of you is extremely real and I want to empower you to win in the fight of you vs anxiety and stress. Watch today’s video for all the helpful tips and let me know of any successful ways you stop yourself from being like Vegeta with the good hair.
